Charles Coomber, the Digital Samauri, is a multi-subject teacher and tech enthusiast from San Diego. He will discuss using virtual reality in the classroom and how things have changed since COVID. He will also give advice on how to support students like the host of our, Lawson Soukup, in pursuing virtual reality activities.
Students in VR is an Educators in VR project whose mission is to provide education, leadership, research, collaboration, and networking opportunities to students of all ages from primary, secondary, and graduate studies and beyond.
A fundamental shift is occurring in education. Once a top-down static practice of information transfer, learning is now about the dynamic act of knowledge creation. Students are not just content consumers but also content contributors and content creators.
Students in VR is an organization that supports, highlights and connects students who use spatial computing to create the lessons, environments and worlds in which they live and learn. Emerging technologies have finally caught up with the creativity and genius of youth. We are here to support that creativity and genius through the Student in VR international conferences and chapters.
*The first Students in VR conference was in May 2020, bringing together students from around the world to produce and present at the innovative conference. Students in VR will host their second VR conference on October 29th + 30th, 2020.
